LiviaMcCoy writes: Dyslexic children are very different from one another. They are bright and have some difficulty related to language. How to help them depends on the individual and what their specific language problems are. I believe the best start might be asking the parents some questions. The person who diagnosed the child probably wrote reports that recommend specific ways to help. There are many books like mine on the market about helping these students as well as websites like www.ldonline.org.
